We are all familiar with the craftiness of Dirk Nowitzki on the basketball court, however when he tried to apply it on the soccer field he failed miserably.

The Dallas Maverick’s brass probably almost had a heart attack when they witnessed this clip Nowitzki’s bicycle kick attempt from his┬ácharity soccer event held in Germany.

A 7-footer jumping that high, contorting his body and landing on his back can never be a good thing, but luckily Nowitzki was able to walk away unscathed.

Dirk can be proud of one thing from his charity event though, as his Simone Zaza running man penalty kick imitation was spot on.

Here’s the original penalty kick from Zaza.
